IssueOutcomeDescription The CCC received 28 grant applications req
The CCC received 28 grant applications requesting a total of $5,292,007. Because the Commission only had $1 million to distribute, Staff determined that it could only fund 11 grant requests. The City of Los Angeles was a major focus of the deliberation. Some Commissioners were disappointed that L.A. only received $100,000. Other Commissioners mentioned that for nearly 40 years, L.A. has made little progress in developing an LCP for certification, while many other cities have been actively working on their LCPs—and thus should be rewarded for their efforts. Staff reminded the Commission that every grant application needed to meet funding criteria and that L.A. did not do so as well as some other jurisdictions. After extensive debate, the Commission voted 9-2 to approve Staff’s proposed grant allocations.
